The curriculum at LECA reflects our philosophy and that of the Active Learning Trust. That is that students should be able to experience the broadest possible suite of subjects allowing them to develop real expertise in a wide range of topics. The curriculum is designed with three key areas at the forefront: Intent, Implementation and Impact. Each subject leader has designed their programme of study to pinpoint these exact areas and they are constantly reviewing and updating their plans to fine tune everything they do. Each plan shows clearly the journey each student will take with the knowledge and skills building year on year until they leave us in Year 11.
In the design phase of these curriculum plans it became obvious that there were not only skills links between subjects but also knowledge links. To this end we have want the subjects to compliment each other as they are taught. As we grow and develop the plans, these links will become clearer and stronger so students will appreciate how each subject area contributes to the whole.
LECA runs a traditional 3 year Key Stage 3 to support the breadth of curriculum on offer. With the knowledge and skills clearly mapped, all students will then be prepared for the final two years of their LECA journey. In Year 9, students make their option choices and we encourage students to follow routes which they will enjoy and fully engage in. Further information on options and choices will follow and you can find our more about our current school curriculum by contacting subject teachers on our Staff page.
